I begin an apprenticeship with boilermakers local 73, in February.
Leaving graphic design behind.
Not the easiest decision I ever made.
I took the opportunity I had at my disposal.
Turns out I’m a decent welder, which feels good.
To give up a desk job for this made for some scary, uncertain thoughts and a few “holy shit” moments. I have two kids. I’ve been home for their entire lives, now I’ll be gone for most of the rest of them. I hope this is the right decision.
The money is supposed to be good.
We do what we must. Life is hard.
